deadly officer-involved shooting in oakland. the second one this week there. this time it happened in the city's rockridge district. don knapp with what police are saying. >> reporter: throughout the day police investigators have been on the scene in some cases down on their knees scouring for evidence in a case made all the more sensitive by the fact that police shot and killed a man who was carrying a fake gun. police say they shot and killed a man wielding what they called a replica assault weapon. one apparently not capable of firing a shot. the shooting came when police answered a call on taft avenue between college and broadway as they approached the home seeing a man carrying the replica and dressed in camaflouge. >> a man exited the home and confronted the officers armed with an automatic rifle. the officers immediately opened
fire on the gentleman which ended his life. there were three officers that were involved in the shooting. we determined later on that the weapon was a replica assault weapon. >> reporter: while it may have been a difficult call for officers facing what they thought was an armed man, a visitor to the neighborhood saw it differently. >> it was a calm, quiet morning for the block to suddenly fill up with 10 police cars and policemen out on the sidewalk with shot guns pulled, raised, pointed at a house in a residential neighborhood. it was totally inappropriate. what i heard was the person had a knife. as far as i'm concerned, that's just -- and to shoot and kill is even more appropriate. >> reporter: the second officer-involved shooting in three days. they killed a man following a chase in east oakland when the man ran from the gun and showed two guns. last weekend a police officer with the oakland schools shot and killed a 20-year-old man as he sat with a woman in a stolen
car near a skyline high dance. the schools say brown was shot as he stabbed at a police officer with a screwdriver. brown's mother told the san francisco chronicle police murdered her son saying he was not violent but a very sweet person who helped as many people as he could. besides the trauma of the people directly involved in the incident here at taft street you have to think about the lasting memory of the neighborhood. we saw a group of young girls tonight go to a birthday next door and took a moment to look and went outside. it is the sort of thing that lingers for a very long time. ann? >> i guess. don knapp, thank you very much. well, the body of a missing san rafael high school teacher has been found. 53-year-old debra schmitt disappeared 10 days ago leaving behind a note on her chalkboard. the search has ended for a

not a lot of rain but enough to do damage on the highways. there was a five-car pileup on 680. >> sometimes a little moisture makes it very slick on the freeways. heavy sprinkles around the bay area. weak cold front moving on through but that's the most amount of precipitation we have seen. we haven't been able to get any rain going here in the middle of winter but looks like it is back now. we have got showers showing up around the bay area and more to come. outside a lot of clouds around the city of san francisco and around most of the bay area you've got mostly cloudy skies. another band of moisture just making its way onshore now and that will bring with it some more rainfall. high-def doppler is picking up on some of the showers outside right now. you can see that system just making its way onshore as we speak. we had scattered light showers with the weak cold front move
through earlier today but this one looking to be a little more substantial so this should really bring some rain down. down into santa rosa now and petaluma more showers in that direction as well. continuing down towards invarness. and mill valley. more sitting off the coastline. this whole band will start to slide in along the peninsula in the next hour or so. so, yes, more rain around the bay area and still more off the coastline. so, finally getting things going rain wise. cold front kind of barreling on through as high pressure has been camping out here the last couple weeks but this front sliding on in bringing light showers but this is making its way behind it. i think tomorrow morning you'll see some showers early on in the morning. maybe even the possibility of an isolated thunderstorm early on. then by the afternoon a little sunshine and maybe a couple rainbows too. numbers runs in the 40s and 50s. if you're traveling around the state be prepared for rainfall in the monterey bay area. fresno as well. high country. we have snow finally up there. winter weather advisory is going up at about 4500 feet.
could see some snow. yes, down to about that level. maybe about a foot or so as you head above 7000. as we are expecting the system to dive on through, sliding right on near the bay area that will keep things going overnight tonight. i think the main event really as we head into the early morning hours, rainfall, yes, we got did out there now. more to come as we head throughout the night tonight, computer models picking up pretty good. continuing on and off throughout the night. but the main band, main area of low pressure swinging by as we head into early tomorrow morning so wet beginning to the day but if you sleep in just a couple of hours you know what, most of that will clear out looks like as we head into the afternoon and then we are talking about some sunshine. so i think we may even squeeze a couple rainbows as we head into the afternoon hours as well. how about this? temperatures are going to stay on the cool side. plan on temperatures mainly in the 50s as we will keep things down quite a bit. but not for long. high pressure building into the bay area. looks like again we are going to dry things out for quite awhile. so this may be the last storm system for the next maybe 7, 10
days or so before things get going again. staying high and dry. looks like sunny and bright as we head into the middle of the week. that's a look at the weather. here is kim coyle with sports. >> thank you, lawrence. as spring training gets closer the as think they can be this year's version of the giants. and it was moving day at torrey pines. tiger and phil going in opposite directions. that's next in sports. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
